Extract from Matthew Lee’s and Bob Gibson’s Interview with President-elect Bill Clinton at Inaugural Journey Kick-off at Monticello

Clinton said he opened the bus trip at Monticello “not only because Thomas Jefferson was one of our greatest presidents and perhaps our most brilliant president ... but also because he believed in the power of ideas which have made this country great ... Jefferson believed in public service.”
